Wheatgrass, Triticum aestivum, is the freshly sprouted shoots of grains of wheat. Although wheatgrass is gluten-free, those who are allergic to wheat should not eat wheatgrass. A superb source of oxygen-containing chlorophyll, wheatgrass is extremely high in antioxidants and has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties.
A wheatgrass mask is often used in spas to tighten and firm saggy skin and help clear blemished skin. It is rich in nutrients including amino acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
In hair care, wheatgrass, known for its cleansing properties, helps remove dead cells from your scalp which can help with dandruff and hair loss. Wheatgrass tea used topically can help relieve an itchy scalp as well as restore shine and luster to dull hair.
